Decide the future of our union
About the Members’ Ballot
The ballot is about the creation of a federation consisting of two independent unions, Sveriges Lärare and Sveriges Skolledare.
What will the ballot decide?
What the ballot will help decide is whether Lärarnas Riksförbund, together with Lärarförbundet and Sveriges Skolledarförbund, will form a new federation
consisting of two independent unions, Sveriges Lärare (teachers) and Sveriges Skolledare (headmasters and principals), both members of Saco (the union umbrella organisation for professions requiring a university education).
The purpose of the new federation is to combine strengths whenever interests align, locally as well as nationally, thus achieving better results, support, service and value for our members than what we have accomplished up until today. There will be a federation board, consisting of representatives from either union, which will act as a bridge between the two organisations and coordinate efforts. However, it should be stressed that the two unions in the new
federation will be completely autonomous and in no danger of being forced into undesired compromises.
